    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Not a very orignal title for a post, but that's all I could think of.

    I'm depressed and all I want to do is sleep. I slept all day yesterday and all night. Now I'm ready to go back to sleep again. I don't expect an answer from anybody, I just needed to write. It's during these times that I wish I didn't exist, but somehow I still wake up in the morning. Maybe tomorrow I'll wake up feeling better. I can hope, can't I?

    bornagain216, hope is what it is all about. I am not a sleeper with my depression, but my Mom is. Are you on any medication, or seeing a counselor? this is a tough time of the year for those of us who deal with depression, and I can agree that I would love to sleep through until January. Please post more about yourself, if you are comfortable with that...there are a lot of very supportive people helps to know that you are not alone. Be kind to yourself.....

    Originality is not required here! I'm a "sleep when depressed" kind of person too. During rough times, I can barely keep my eyes open.

    I've found that a medication adjustment, doctor's appointment to discuss or session with a therapist can help enormously.

    Anxiety or depression can cause fatigue but it can also result from overwork, poor sleep, worry, boredom, lack of exercise, illness or medicine. A check in with your primary care physician might be a good idea too!
